- San Francisco isn’t really known for the height of its skyline, and nothing makes that more clear than the newly opened Salesforce Tower.
- At 1070 feet and 61 stories high, Salesforce Tower is by far the tallest building in the tech metropolis. It stands out as the highest point on the skyline when viewed from both inside the city at Mission Dolores Park, and from across the bay in Oakland.
- The second tallest building in San Francisco, the Transamerica Pyramid, opened in 1972. It’s 853 feet and 48 stories high.
- Ultimately, Salesforce Tower is just not that tall compared to other buildings around the world. The world-famous Eiffel Tower of Paris, completed in 1889, is just 7 feet shorter than the Salesforce Tower.
- The skyscraper, which opened on January 8, is called Salesforce Tower after the influential cloud software company that both owns the naming rights, and leases half the building.
- The coworking company WeWork also leases three floors, which it opens to its customers as office space and a floating workspace. The rest of the tenants are to be determined.
Here’s what the view is like from the top floor, the Ohana Room, which boasts 360 degree views of San Francisco:
